The individual anaerobic threshold (IAT) has been defined as the highest metabolic rate at which blood lactate (La) concentrations are maintained at a steady state during prolonged exercise. The validity of this definition, however, has not been substantiated. Eleven men [maximum oxygen uptake ( $$\dot VO_{2max} $$ ), mean (SD), 57.8 (6.9) ml·kg−1 · min−1) did two maximal incremental cycle exercise tests (30 W and 4 min per step). Blood was sampled repeatedly during exercise and for 9 min… CONTINUE READING
